A man’s good deed turned into a nightmare after he was kept as a slave for four years.
The elderly man of New Zealand, went through fours years of psychological abuse after allowing his friend’s grown son into his home.
Cornelio Wiley, 86, invited the son of a friend to stay at home in Auckland for a few weeks, until he gets back on his feet.
However, the short stay turned into a nightmare of four years for the vulnerable old man, as the man moved his girlfriend into the home and ordered the man out of his own room so they can sleep in his bed.
The 86-year-old man said that was ordered to do their shopping, cook and clean for them. The couple also used him to financially support them.
One day, while doing their shopping, the man collapsed outside the grocery store. He was taken to a hospital, where he stayed for some time.
While Wiley was being treated in the hospital, his house guests stooped to a new low. They told his neighbors that he died.
The evil couple then sold his belongings and destroyed the house, where they had been squatting for the last four years.
When it was time to go home, the elderly man told hospital workers that he was afraid. A social worker who got involved in the case, said: “every time I hear his story I get very angry.”
Age Concern, an organization that advocates for elderly people in the country, found Wiley a place at a senior care center in which he has been able to regain his independence.
Wiley, who is now happy again, said that his health is improving.
